Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
Hello- how are things?
This picture heavy post is about the Central Park neighborhood on the Oasis of the Sea cruise ship. Yes, I said a Park on a cruise ship!
We sailed transatlantic (click here for more info) September 2014. We made the crossing from Fort Lauderdale, Florida (click here) and sailed to Barcelona, Spain. Yes, more posts here and here. We were on the ship 13 days, so there are about a million pictures.
This is a bit blurry, but I wanted to show the scale of the green space. AND the SIZE OF THE TREES! This is the biggest cruise ship sailing right now. I understand that the newest XXL is about to take off any day. I cannot imagine how incredible it must be? Because this one was damn AMAZING!
This ship holds 6,000 + passengers and features so, so many balconies. We were in a balcony over looking the Boardwalk (read about it here) next time I think I will try for a spot in this neighborhood.
There were so many pretty plants! From succulents to vines, to grasses and trees. You really do forget you are on a ship, sitting under the trees.
This neighborhood also has a number of restaurants (most are free) and shops.
There are lots of little details that really make this park area nice. People sit around this area and visit, read and of course eat.
I was here everyday. I will not post ALL of my pictures but you get the idea.
It was also very, very clean.
Makes you want to just sit and enjoy the warm weather.
This is the middle of the ship, I believe? To be honest its so big you really need a map.
Walls and walls of greenery. All of this is REAL, not plastic fake plants.
I think everyone was still at breakfast when I took this.
This was one of my favorite places to sit. This is just outside the "Rising Tide" bar. Why sit outside the bar? Well its a bar that slowly rises up through the middle of the ship. (I could not imagine being drunk on it?! WTF?!) or what would happen if you had to get off to go to bathroom? Most of the times that I saw it "dock" no one got off, more people just get on and on... IDK?
The waiting area for the bar has plenty of seating and the area was full of the prettiest plants. I didn't feel like I was taking a cafe's spot so we sat there and watched people walk by and of course the bar go up and down. #CheapThrill but it was cool..
Now back to the park.
I'm so hungry now just thinking about the cruise and all the delicious food!
The weather was IDEAL! The sea was calm as glass and we had a smooth crossing.
I wore sun dresses, sandals and shorts the whole time. #Heaven
This was such a nice trip! I really enjoyed the ship, the food and there was so much to do.
If you get a chance to cruise on this ship DO IT! You will not be sorry. This was our 2nd cruise with Royal and I can't wait to sail with them again.
Catch you later-
